Bottle Nosed Dolphins!

Kids and Parents both love to encounter the beautiful, friendly bottle nosed dolphins on Shell Island at the St Andrews State Park.  There is always a strong possibility of a bottle nose dolphin sighting, but we do not offer a planned dolphin encounter, as they are in the wild.  Take the Shell Island Shuttle or rent one of our new Pontoon Boats and make your vacation an adventure for the whole family!

Remember it is always illegal to harass or feed the bottle nose dolphins.  We recommend if you see them while you are swimming in the emerald green waters off of Shell Island that you keep a safe distance.
